Your Trusted Resilience Partner
APTIM is prepared to defend its coastal clients against the forthcoming risks of future flooding, sea level rise inundation, socioeconomic disruptions, and failure of aging infrastructure.
When we are at full capacity, everything feels harder. Outdated assumptions and emotions make new science and data harder to process. Competing priorities make it difficult to see what matters clearly. The capital improvement process is already a model that simplifies and organizes decision making. The easier path to building coastal resilience is to embed resilience principles and pathways in the existing process. The most essential actions should be the easiest. APTIM’s goal is to help owners and managers avoid information burnout or feeling incapable of taking right action. Active decision making is increasingly important as new funding sources become available for shovel ready resilient projects.

The term ‘resilience improvement’ means the use of materials or structural or nonstructural techniques, including natural infrastructure that allow a project to better anticipate, prepare for and adapt to changing conditions and to withstand and respond to disruptions; and to be better able to continue to serve the primary function of the project during and after weather events and natural disasters for the expected life of the project; or reduce the magnitude and duration of impacts of current and future weather events and natural disasters to a project; or have the absorptive capacity, adaptive capacity, and recoverability to decrease project vulnerability to current and future weather events or natural disasters.
